W. Newton residents and local alderman have shot down a proposed developed at the Knights of Columbus. The proposal called for 5 residential units with garage parking underneath. The handicap accessible unit was only going to be 460 sq/ft — which is tiny.
Neighborhood folks didn’t like the “Motel 6” look of the development and fact that the garage design would likely cause residents to park on the street. At a community meeting on July 25th, neighbors voiced their concerns to the developers attorney. At an August 4th meeting of the Land Use Committee, the developers revised plan did not impress. Neighbors were still concerned about the density and impact on the neighborhood.
So right now, this development is nowhere you guys.
